volunteer work in church- not much but consistently a little work for 3 yrs.
I am applying at Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Columbia, Duke, NYU and Cornell.
The way i see it i have one weakness in my application. Before i moved to america, i did the first 2 yrs of my undergrad in India. In The 2nd yr of that I failed some subjects. In hindsight i think it was immaturity, but basically i knew i couldnt transfer more than 60 credits so i didnt go to class for some of the classes that i wouldnt transfer.
My questions are- how big an issue will this be? I have significant academic accomplishments after and i beleive a decent GMAT.
The second question is- I am addressing this in my optional essay, but i am wondering if i am drawing too much attention to something that happened 7+ years ago?
